Publisher Description

The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Moiraine Damodred arrives in Emond’s Field on a quest to find the one prophesized to stand against The Dark One, a malicious entity sowing the seeds of chaos and destruction. When a vicious band of half-men, half beasts invade the village seeking their master’s enemy, Moiraine persuades Rand al’Thor and his friends to leave their home and enter a larger unimaginable world filled with dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

    " Robert Jordan's breakout Fantasy story. Exceptional characters, unique plots, lots of action. Jordan brings the story to life with his flair for detailed story telling, believable dialogue, and fast paced story. Great story to read, even better with the dual voiced narration. "

    " This series is not for the weak mind. Those with low concentration will not enjoy reading this Epic tail of love and unwelcome power. However the audio book is easier to enjoy for all. This series is far removed from other fantasy works and does Not compare well with Tolken,Donaldson or Brooks. "

    " Horrific. Complete and painfully obvious rip off of Tolkien. Poorly written. Almost no character development. Makes an intelligent reader want to gouge her eyes out. "

    " Everything that's great about this series (wonderful characters, interesting world-building) and everything that's annoying (the arbitrary withholding of information to build suspense, the ambiguous ending) are all here from the start.
